Fanny Brice as Baby Snooks
I enjoyed this. Like this or not, this episode has historical value and if very important to their fans. This was the ONLY TV appearance of Fanny Brice and Hanley Stafford as Baby Snooks and Daddy. They were very popular on radio. Fanny Brice died shortly after this was aired of a massive cerebral hemorrhage at age 59.

Of course, there were a surprisingly good amount of decent shows on the air in 1951, but hey, every era in television (or any other medium for that matter) has its duds.
Strange thing about 1950s TV: Many of the shows had far less advertising than modern-day series, but there were also some series like this which were just plugs for the sponsor.
Also, poor script that showcases the worst of 1951.
I do, however, like the idea of the revolving sets, very clever actually.
Worth only 2/5, I give it an extra star due to Fanny Brice.
